On Our Way to Iceland


By Cat Taylor


As I type this, I am on a late-night plane from Heathrow to Reykjavik, and I could not be more excited. For me, the last few days have been endless packing and sorting as I close down the office for the guys until we find out about Season 3, but suddenly I am on the plane and flying over the UK, Scotland and then north.

North of the Wall. Multiple locations, 18 days. The wildlings, the wolves and worse all await us. For Jon and the Watch, it’s a journey of discovery. For me it’s a journey of 4x4s and quad bikes.

There is no doubt that shooting will be a challenge. Remote locations, only four or five hours of light each day and challenging weather, but I cannot wait for the chance to see a country I have always wanted to visit in the way we will. The Icelandic government has given the show access to locations that you could not go as a regular visitor. We are going at the perfect time for snow and possibly the Northern Lights.

What more could you possibly ask for (other than extra gloves)?
